This partnership is the product of extensive research and collaboration and the bold new alliance  represents an exciting opportunity for customers to benefit from the combined expertise of these two companies.

AlignCloud tailors services for cloud providers and end-users alike. From cloud readiness assessment planning to cloud vendor management, AlignCloud provides indispensable services for all cloud customers. For cloud hosting providers, AlignCloud can help providers train sales staff, draft sales plans and fully engage with Web marketing and SEO. With its focus on the cloud and web hosting market, AlignCloud is a natural referral partner for Host Merchant Services.

HMS CEO Lou Honick has aptly summarized the buzz surrounding this collaboration. “Our expertise in e-commerce, payment cost optimization, and security meshes perfectly with AlignCloud to create compelling offerings,” Honick said of the AlignCloud partnership. AlignCloud clients can now seamlessly access secure, reliable merchant services, PCI compliance solutions, and e-commerce.

AlignCloud and Host Merchant Services

In the business world, demand for cloud services has reached an all time high. As mobile devices become more important for business, public worries about information security keep pace. Cloud Hosting is a type of hosting platform that allows customers powerful, scalable and reliable hosting based on clustered load-balanced servers and utility billing. Web hosting services allow individuals and organizations to make their website accessible via the World Wide Web.

For AlignCloud’s customers, HMS has designed services to insure absolute peace of mind. According to AlignCloud CEO Stacy Griggs, the program will provide clients with “lower rates and better service for credit card processing, mobile payments and merchant services.” The experts at HMS combine technical knowledge with uniquely dynamic customer service. Through expertise in data security and fraud reduction, Host Merchant Services promotes more confident commerce, both for businesses and customers alike.

A cloud hosted website can be more reliable than alternatives since other computers in the cloud can compensate when a single piece of hardware goes down. Also, local power disruptions or even natural disasters are less problematic for cloud hosted sites, as cloud hosting is decentralized. Cloud hosting also allows providers to charge users only for resources consumed by the user, rather than a flat fee for the amount the user expects they will use, or a fixed cost upfront hardware investment.

For Host Merchant Services, the partnership with AlignCloud is part of their successful strategy to partner with the web hosting and cloud services industry. Companies like AlignCloud can better serve clients by integrating credit card processing into their offerings. Through Host Merchant Services, AlignCloud customers will experience hassle-free credit card processing with 24x7x365 hour technical support and responsive website.

Clients of AlignCloud can also earn extra revenue by referring their customers to the program.
